BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Mayor Thomas Menino isn’t very happy with the business improvement district that encompasses Downtown Crossing.

He says the owners of several big buildings and three McDonald’s franchises are refusing to participate.

By law, participation in business improvement districts is strictly voluntary.

More than 80 percent of Downtown Crossing’s property owners have signed onto the effort, but the ones who haven’t are leaving the district $1 million short of funding a year.

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino speaks with WBZ Producer Ed Golden.
